The Mighty Movie

The Mighty MovieParamount bought the film rights to The Mighty, a DC Comics property published in 2009 and 2010 written by Peter J. Tomasi and Keith Champagne with art by Peter Snejbjerg. The story revolves around a superhero called Alpha One and a human cop named Gabriel Cole: the cop is a fan of Alpha One, but comes to realize that the superhero is actually a villain. There's no official release date yet for the film.

"Welcome to the world of The Mighty! Alpha One – America’s first and only Super Hero – is supported by Section Omega, an entire police force devoted to assisting him in his quest for justice. Lt. Gabriel Cole has worked his way up the ranks of Section Omega and his connection to Alpha One reaches back to his own tragic childhood and an accident nobody could have survived. But when murder strikes at the top of the organization, the case falls into his lap, and he'll begin to learn what being a hero is really all about!"

A superhero gone bad? Well, haven't checked out the comic book, but I do dig its premise, it deserves to be adapted into a movie.

Do you have any suggestion regarding the movie adaptation of The Mighty?

Anyway, more information about the Mighty movie as soon as details emerge.
